I suck at editing wrinkles, and couldn't control the time we could shoot.

You did a nice job of pulling it off.

harsh light is undervalued. if you can get the shadows to work for you its fine and creates an interesting look, sometime the best images come from going against the norm and pulling it off.

you want to know what really helped you here? putting her hair on the other side so the light fell on hr face. had you not done that these would not have turned out well.

minor quibbles, straighten the first two a bit, the last one is beautifully done.

Oftentimes harsh light works quite well in B&W images.;)

1 - Not bad but a lot of stuff going on in the background which is distracting. The light obviously isn't very good but you did a decent job working with it.

2 - Light is just too harsh for me. The location is better, but just too much light. Not a fan of the pose and staring in on her armpit. Light is really harsh on her left arm.

3 - Not a huge fan of the tilt and she needs more light on her, less light in the background. Upper left of the shot is pulling you away from the subject.

Do you not have a flash or reflector?

I have a reflector just didn't have anyone to help at the time(or a reflector stand), thanks for the input! I can see everything you're saying.

I don't know, I like 1 and 3, don't really like the light in the second one, in the first one I would have tried to get rid of the sign in the background, I would darken them up a little bit if it were me, perhaps a light amount of reflector on the shadow side, but not sure I would have used a flash on these, and hay who doesn't love a red head:D
